This marriage started off with a rattle and their photographer was there to capture it all.
On the way to their reception, Jonny and Laura Loretz made a quick pit stop at their favorite hiking trail to sneak in a photo shoot with their photographer Maddie Mae Wilbur. The couple was only 50 feet from the parking lot when a rattlesnake came OUT OF NOWHERE and bit Johnny in the leg.
A park ranger just so happened to be driving by, so the trio desperately waved to get his attention.
The ranger yelled "congratulations" to the couple, but quickly ran to help once he realized the situation.
The paramedics were called and Laura had to inform the reception guests that there was a bite hiccup.
Johnny was taken by ambulance with his bride by his side.
The ER determined Johnny suffered from a "dry bite' and quickly discharged him within 20 minutes.
Johnny and Laura were greeted by a thunderous applause when they FINALLY showed up to their reception... Only an hour late
"I don't always get bit by rattlesnakes, but when I do, it's on my wedding day." -- JohnnyI truly believe that every wedding is an adventure, and yesterday's was a surreal & incredible example. Laura & Johnny, I admire your steadfastness & courage... even just 2 hours into your marriage. As Jonny said, "I don't always get bit by rattlesnakes, but when I do, it's on my wedding day." So glad that all is well... your wedding is one that I will never forget. -- Maddie May
